CD Length explaination from Varese   Thursday, October 30, 2003 (11:16 a.m.) 

Okay, I know this has been posted before (took me awhile to find it, however), but since its been brought up again, here is the "why" behind most 30-minute soundtrack albums:

Here is a more recent follow-up:

For those of you who haven't seen these letters before, they are highly recommended reading.

Ok that's understandable but the only big two issues that I have is:

#1: I hate ODD number tracks! Hello! If 30 minute albums are being released than please fit in even number tracks! I hate to combine two tracks together on my minidisc after transfering a soundtrack. This also goes for all albums to have even number tracks. Odd number is not complete to me! I'm sorry but it isn't!

#2: For example - Why the hell does the soundtrack to Forbidden Zone (Varese Sarabande!) on lp have two more tracks than the cd issue!? I think that's cheating us who want to get the soundtrack on cd instead or with the lp and the cd is missing two tracks that are on the lp! Stop it! Please! I own both the lp and cd of Forbidden Zone and when I transfer the cd to md, I'll have to copy the two tracks on the lp to add to the md.
